Suggestions for Prayers

There are about 4,000 children in the UK waiting for adoption. Going through the adoption process, can be a lengthy process, so we pray for those children waiting to be placed with caring families. “Lord, give each child the hope of a new family to provide them with a stable home and the love and the consistent care that they need.”

Pray for People in the Micklethwaite area of Wetherby: Boston Road, Grange View, Micklethwaite Grove, Micklethwaite View, Wetherby Road, Grange Park, Sports Centre, Police Station.

This week Churches in Wetherby pray for:  All who share in the Week of Christian Unity.

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases - Lamentations 3.22-23. After I spoke about this verse recently, it seemed to hit a chord. Some asked for the reference, others wondered whether it might be a special verse for St James’ to hold in mind during 2018. They are good words to remember and encourage us for this year. ‘ The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end, they are new every morning, great is your faithfulness’. Brendan
